SEED has appointed Capricornia as exclusive distributor of its contact lens products in Australia and New Zealand, effective 1 July 2022.
Capricornia is a wellestablished Australian manufacturer and distributor of prescription contact lenses including RGP, soft and scleral lenses. SEED’s CEO Masahiro Urakabe said, “We have had great success with our daily disposable products since launching our products in Australia three years ago.
Our partnership with Capricornia is a logical next step to strengthen our position as a contact lens supplier. Our aim is to supply the best-in-class contact lens products and through Capricornia we can increase the level of service to our optometrist partners.”
SEED’s ANZ General Manager William Tse added, “It especially makes sense when it comes to SEED’s flagship lens SEED 1dayPure EDOF, a daily disposable soft contact lens that utilises BHVI’s patented optics. There is a lot of synergy with our product and Capricornia’s existing product portfolio. Optometrists will benefit by being able to source and seek technical support for our products from a well-established Australian company for all their specialty lens needs.”
Tony Capitano, Managing Director of Capricornia, said his company is looking forward to supporting SEED and its customers.
“As an ISO13485 accredited company, Capricornia understands and appreciates the Quality Management Systems that SEED have in place that assure their products are of the highest possible quality; this sits perfectly alongside our own practices,” he said.
